NFL Week 11

By Brett Minnick
Following a week filled with blowout wins for hot teams, week 11 looks to have a few more upsets in it.  Last week, the Patriots blew out the Broncos; but look for the Raiders to make a statement and possibly live up to the preseason hype against one of the top teams of the NFL.

This came as a surprise as the Yankees somehow found a way to defeat one of the best pitchers in the game, Corey Kluber, not 1 but 2 times. New York will face the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series, with the winner reaching the ultimate stage in the World Series. The Astros hope to counter the Yankees lineup with Ace Dallas Keuchel, but that may not be enough to stop the Yank’s hot lineup.
